I don't care if you are KDF or FED, if there is a build that exploits bad coding in the game it needs shutting down, and you had better believe it will be, so stop whining and start testing to find out what it is.
you guys came here complaining that something is off, no actual proof, just acusations that "waaaaaa i have no power evil klingons waaaa" maybe you should do some testing and bring the proof?

So yes a full team with all these toys can completely shut a target down. Just as a full team of OP fed ships with phasers, virals, danoobs can completely shut a ship down. Tough luck.

Sorry you keep loosing to evil klingons and want them nerfed. ALl the shiney fed toys with 5 tac consoles, and hangar pets, better shield mods, can't save you. Too bad. KDF toys are fine, FED carebears suck at PvP, that is the problem.
now now havam, you should no better then to argue with fedbears.
after all, kirk was one himself.

But it seems the polaron proc isnt reduced by power insulators. The proc alone can make a cube drop its shields.
if polaron proc isnt reduced as you claim we need actual testing on this to see if its a specific combo of things or if its something else entirely.

im personally still wondering what the op was talking about that an escort has to drain power better then a science ship, the only possible thing is target subsystems 3 but thats reduced by power insulators.

the only other other thing i could think is maybe leech got broken again in a recent patch? can i get a klingon to check that out for me?

Science pvp at its best-
